For Water Mark Stain and Heat Ring removal from wooden surfaces Howard’s Restor-A-Finish has been a standard in the antique industry. Because Restor-A-Finish preserves and restores beauty to the original wood finish, it helps preserve the antiques’ authenticity and value, whereas stripping the finish may literally strip the piece of its value. Restor-A-Finish penetrates faded lacquer, shellac, and varnish finishes to bring back the original colour and lustre. It restores the depth of grain in wood finishes, going much deeper than temporary “scratch cover” products. Restor-A-Finish penetrates and permanently restores most wood finishes without removing any of the existing finish – this is why it is very popular for antiques. Restor-A-Finish maintains the original “patina” of an antique finish, maintaining its character and value as an antique.
After removal of the Water Mark Stain or Heat Rings, follow up with Feed-N-Wax Wood Polish & Conditioner, ideal for enhancing the natural depth of grain while providing added protection and lustre to furniture, antiques, and cabinets. Feed-N-Wax helps introduce conditioning oils that “feed” the wood while providing a protective coating of beeswax and carnauba wax. Feed-N-Wax can be used on finished or unfinished wood to help preserve and keep the wood from drying out, fading, or even cracking. Feed-N-Wax should be used whenever wood starts to look faded or dry, usually every month or so.
Our original blend of beeswax, Brazilian carnauba wax, mineral oil, and orange oil is the perfect product to enhance the natural beauty and depth of grain in all woods, finished and unfinished.
Almost any existing wood tone, from a light Birdseye Maple to a dark Jacobean, can be closely matched using one of the nine available finish colours. Restor-A-Finish should be used in a colour that best matches your finish. If you are uncertain about which colour to use, then chose a colour slightly lighter than your finish. It’s recommended that you test Restor-A-Finish in an inconspicuous spot to make sure you like what it does and how it matches the finish.
Restor-A-Finish is a unique finish-penetrating formula that contains a small amount of stain combined with just the right amount of solvent and restoring oils, giving it the unique ability to penetrate and permanently restore most existing finishes without removing any of the existing finish.
Can I use Restor-A-Finish more than once?
Yes. Restor-A-Finish is usually used only once and then the restored finish is maintained with Feed-N-Wax, Orange Oil or Lemon Oil. If you have deep white rings or watermarks that do not come out with the first application, then you may want to apply it again with super fine (#0000) steel wool, to help blend out the damaged finish. Be careful not to rub too hard, but hard enough to blend out the damaged areas. Keep in mind that since Restor-A-Finish can penetrate through most finishes, it can also “bloom” back out, so do not soak or leave it on for more than a couple of minutes. Usually, it is a wipe-on, restore, then wipe-off process.
What colour Restor-A-Finish should I use?
Always choose the Restor-A-Finish colour that best matches your finish. An exact match is not necessary. If it seems to be in-between colours, we recommend starting with a lighter colour.
What is in Restor-A-Finish?
Restor-A-Finish is a unique formula that contains just the right amount of solvent blended with stain and mineral oil. Restor-A-Finish penetrates through the existing finish to blend out light scratches, sun fade and other damage while restoring the colour and lustre in one step. It will not remove or soften the existing finish – this is why it is very popular for antiques. Restor-A-Finish maintains the original “patina” of an antique finish – so it maintains its character/value as an antique.
I have used Restor-A-Finish but my finish still looks dull, what do I do?
If the piece originally had a high shine finish, try using our Restor-A-Shine products: our Polishing Compound and Burnishing Cream utilize extremely fine polishing powders blended with polishing oils to restore high shine finishes by polishing out fine scratches and blemishes (see the Restor-A-Shine page).
Can I put a clear coat finish on after I am done using Restor-A-Finish?
No. Keep in mind that the purpose of Restor-A-Finish is to restore an EXISTING finish. If your goal is to improve the shine, we recommend following up with our Restor-A-Shine products. If you are looking for added protection, we recommend following up with our Citrus Shield Paste Wax or Feed-N-Wax.
Can I use Restor-A-Finish on my kitchen cabinets?
Yes! Restor-A-Finish is ideal for kitchen cabinets. It will restore the original colour and lustre to your cabinets without having to strip and refinish them. Typically, kitchen cabinets have a thin lacquer finish (especially in newer homes). It is a good idea to protect and maintain the restored cabinets with Feed-N-Wax. As always, test Restor-A-Finish in an inconspicuous spot and see if you like what the restored finish looks like before restoring the entire kitchen.
How long does it take Restor-A-Finish to dry?
Restor-A-Finish usually penetrates into the finish more than it “dries.” You should wipe it on, let it work and then wipe/buff off the excess. Some people confuse Restor-A-Finish with Danish Oil, tung oil or finishing oil – these oils usually soak in and solidify in the wood pores. Restor-A-Finish should soak in, taking the stain with it – restoring the finish to its original colour and lustre. It works best on shellac, lacquer and most other finishes. Harder finishes such as polyurethane will absorb less of the stain/restorer, but will still look much better after Restor-A-Finish is applied. Always maintain the “restored” look with Feed-N-Wax, Citrus-Shield Paste Wax, Orange Oil or Lemon Oil. Use Restor-A-Shine Polishing Compound to buff out fine scratches left by (0000) steel wool or to restore or rub out harder polyurethane finishes to a high gloss.
Can I use Restor-A-Finish on my antiques?
Definitely! Howard Products got our start in the antique industry with antique dealers using Restor-A-Finish. Instead of stripping and refinishing – Restor-A-Finish allowed them to “Restore It – Don’t Strip It!” Restor-A-Finish maintains the character, value, and patina of the antique and after the antique is restored, maintaining it with Feed-N-Wax is the best way to keep the finish from drying out and fading.
What should I use to clean with before using Restor-A-Finish?
The wood surface should be free from heavy dust, grime, grease and dirt before using Restor-A-Finish. Most of the time, you do not need to pre-clean before using Restor-A-Finish. If the wood surface is really dirty, you can use a soft cloth and either Orange or Lemon Oil or Howard Clean-A-Finish before restoring.
Do I use Feed-N-Wax or Paste Wax after Restor-A-Finish?
After using Restor-A-Finish, most of the time, Feed-N-Wax is used to maintain the “restored” look. Feed-N-Wax adds shine, protection, and is the perfect follow up to Restor-A-Finish. On high gloss finishes (pianos) Citrus Shield Paste Wax can be used to add a hard carnauba wax shine and protection. For fine scratches on a glossy finish, Restor-A-Shine Polishing Compound can be used to rub out the finish to a scratch-free gloss.
